Tapper: This one with the catchy headline NSA tool collects nearly everything a user does on the internet. It's called "Keyscore." Greenwald: it's a program used by the NSA to collect all internet activity everything they can collect, store it, and allow their low-level analysts with access to terminals to search what it is they want and fit out what your e-mails say, what Google search terms you entered, and pretty much anything else you do on the internet. It's an all-purpose (buying device.)

Tapper: Clapper's office today released its own set of stunning documents. Among them a previously classified Congressional briefing paper outlining the Patriot. act provision allowing for an early warning system involving logging all the domestic e-mails and phone conversations of Americans, with this attempted assurance, only a tiny fraction of such records are ever viewed by NSA

Tapper: intelligence analysts. But -- and here's where Greenwald's story today is important -- the question is not whether they're viewed as an official policy but whether they can be. Snowden told Greenwald: yes. Snowden: I sitting at my desk certainly this the authorities to wiretap anyone. Tapper: Though members and supporters of the US national security apparatus disputed that. Greenwald: there's no question but that Edward Snowden has been completely vindicated by the documents and by the disclosures as a completely honest whistleblower one of the most significant whistleblowers in American history.

Ron Wyden
U.S. Senator (D-Oregon), Member of Select Committee on Intelligence

Wyden: that's something that I believe needs to be closed and apropos of your conversation, I think this is a unique time in our constitutional history. I don't think we should let this time go by without striking a better balance between security and liberty. Tapper: You seem to be suggesting though there are not enough constraints not safeguards on who has access to this information that we all now know about. Wyden: I particularly believe that the bulk collection of hundreds of millions of phone call records on

Tapper: The Director of National Intelligence, Mr. Clapper, released some information today and there seemed to be two significant items in what he released. One is about this bulk e-mail collection program that operated until 2011. Intelligence officials had said they shut it down on their own. Though it was you and Sen. Udall who pushed for it to be shut down. Now you have said in the past that intelligence officials gave statements about the value of this bulk email data collection program, statements that were not true. With today's declassification

Tapper continued: by clapper, can you say with any more specificity what wasn't true in the assertions that these officials were making about bulk e-mail data collection? Wyden: I can't get into the details, but let me be very specific about what concerns Sen. Udall and I. In the document that was declassified today, it talked about how the bulk collection of e-mail was

Wyden continued 2: of the leaders in the intelligence community have not just kept the Congress in the dark. The Congress have been given inaccurate statements and in effect been actively misled. Tapper: Another line of defense by Clapper is they scoop up tons of information but it's okay because they have rules about how to access it. Now you’ve said there’s been a couple of issues with that. First, that the scooping itself violates privacy. But second, there are questions about whether there have ever been any violations. Friday
